Re: First cp piece. "Simple Pleasures"

I just had to post again as I have now spent time admiring your other work -you are truly very talented. I really hope you do more in Colour Pencil as it is a great medium and I know that we would all love to see more (Just being greedy! )

Hope you stay a little longer ,

Re: First cp piece. "Simple Pleasures"

I love photo-realism, and you are quite a master at it judging by this piece.
I like how you introduced all of the subtle colors, and the textures are amazing. I hope you will do more in cp, as you've done incredible things on your first one.

WOW Ian..after seeing many of your acrylics and now this you have really made a good transition to CP's This looks like you could pick it up right off the paper.
I dont think there is going to be any problems with this medium.

Re: First cp piece. "Simple Pleasures"

This is fabulous Ian. I too strive for photo realism but am nowhere as good as you are. What do folks here think of photo-realistic art? There are critics who say why bother sketching in photo-realist style when you can take a photo, that you aren't really creating art, you are just copying etc. etc.
